EPA taps Signal for follow-on software pact
The Environmental Protection Agency has signed a five-year, $6 million task order with Signal Corp. of Fairfax, Va., to continue developing software for EPA's environmental response teams.
EPA's Emergency Response Team Cen-ter in Edison, N.J., hosts the applications at www.ertsupport.org
. One recent addition by Signal is Scribe, a tool for producing chain-of-custody forms for environmental samples gathered from the World Trade Center disaster site in New York.
Other apps include a removal cost management system and a risk assessment tool. The order also provides training for EPA employees.
